What I learned in the cafeteria this week

Here's what I learned in the cafeteria this week:

  • A butt smacking good time.  I was walking up the stairs to fetch dirty silverware from the teacher's lounge when I felt someone whack me on the butt.  Who is it?  A second grader.  We promptly had a chat about what is appropriate and what is not.
  • Elementary school is a big place.  This week I found a 1st grader just standing at the bottom of the stairs crying.  She couldn't find her way to music.  We promptly had a chat about why standing alone crying is an ineffective solution to just about any problem.
  • Milketerian:  I had a little boy tell me at breakfast the he is a milketerian.  "That means I don't drink no milk," he said.  I explained that if a vegetarian eats only vegetables than a milketerian should only drink milk.  He just laughed at me.
  • Bulletin Boards:  Just when you think no one is noticing all the work you put into the decorations and the bulletin boards some little kindergarten says, "Those 'piders are scary" while pointing at the bats your co-worker hung.
  • Offer vs serve:  It is better to serve peaches to everyone and have them throw them away or is it better to offer the peaches and have no one take them?  "Is that applesauce?"  Really....what color applesauce do you eat at your house?

This week I learned that I am totally out of sync now that I don't have any kids in school. I don't know when the holidays are and when days off are. I just found out today that Monday is a holiday. Who knew that this would happen when my kids graduated?!?!

Sounds like you are becoming more than just "the cafeteria lady" -- sounds like you are a walking disciplinarian and teacher of children!
